“You’ll do more in life than just dating the boy on the football team,” Swift, who as of 2023 has been connected to NFL star Travis Kelce, sung.

When Taylor Swift sung a line from her song “Fifteen” about how she’s meant to do “greater things” than dating a football star, the Lyon, France audience laughed a little. Written when she was still a teenager, the song was first made available in 2008.

During the acoustic part of her concert on Sunday night (June 2), Swift performed a piano mashup of the iconic Fearless line with the more recent “You’re on Your Own, Kid,” from 2022’s Midnights. At this point in the presentation, Swift modifies the set list according to the current date.

Fans responded noticeably to Swift’s decision to sing “in your life you’ll do things greater than dating the boy on the football team” at this particular moment in the song on Sunday, when she reached the section of “Fifteen” where she indicates back on her high school years from the perspective of someone who has been through it. This is because the pop star is currently in a high-profile relationship with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

On Sunday, Swift responded to the uproar with a short smile and laugh.

After the evening’s surprise guitar performance, in which “The Prophecy” made its live debut, she laughed at the whole “boy on the football team” thing. The emotionally charged song, which can be heard on The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology, takes a curious turn when Swift mixes her writing in a mix of the two pieces, using the perspective from Evermore’s “Long Story Short.”

The singer-songwriter for Tortured Poets said, “Some nights like tonight I try out playing a song that I’ve never played live before,” before performing “The Prophecy.” (Swift remains at the top of the Billboard 200 albums list with Poets, after holding the position for six weeks in a row.)

“I’ve been on my knees/changing the prophecy/not wanting money/just someone who wants my company/let it once be me/who do I have to speak to/about if they can redo/ the prophecy,” the song’s lyrics go. “I looked to the sky and said, please.” Swift provides voice to “The Prophecy” chorus.

“And he’s passing by, rare as the glimmer of a comet in the sky/ And he feels like home/ If the shoe fits, walk in it everywhere you go,” she tells herself in “Long Story Short.” “Past me, I wanna tell you not to get lost in these petty things/ Your nemeses will defeat themselves before you get the chance to swing.”
